iTunes-compatible Movies Anywhere service adds new Screen Pass sharing feature

Movies Anywhere — the free-to-join digital movie locker service that syncs up your purchased films across platforms like iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, and Vudu — is launching a new feature called Screen Pass, that lets you share (temporarily) your purchased movies with friends or family members, reports The Verge.

Movies Anywhere is a U.S.-exclusive cloud-based digital locker and over-the-top streaming platform operated by The Walt Disney Company. It allows users to stream and download purchased films, including digital copies redeemed from codes found in home video releases as well as digital purchases from participating services.

With Screen Pass, Movies Anywhere users will be able to share up to three films per month, giving temporary access to the recipient. Users will have seven days to accept the offer, which will give them access to the film for 14 days. Once started, recipients will have 72 hours to finish the film. The three-share limit resets on the first of every month, letting you share more films. (Unused passes won’t roll over.)
